Clémentine Portier-Kaltenbach 4:45 p.m., April 20, 2022

In the Paris of the Roaring Twenties, the party is in full swing in a cabaret that has become legendary: Le Boeuf sur le Toit.

Inaugurated with great fanfare on January 10, 1921, this restaurant-cabaret created by Louis Moysès became the meeting place for the cream of the arts and letters: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Coco Chanel and Joséphine Baker regularly hit the mark there, that is to say the party!

From the improvised concerts that were given there at the time, the expression "to jam" was born. Clémentine Portier-Kaltenbach opens the doors of this legendary music hall to you.
